We believe you should not change your dog's diet when they come to camp.

Bring your own kibble in a solid container.  ( The NC Dept. of Agriculture requires a solid container and not just baggies). Hopefully the container size will closely match the amount of kibble needed for the stayOur kennel is small. Please no 50 lb containers for 2 pounds of kibble needed for the weekend stay.  Always include an extra meal or two as well as extra meds.  Write pet's nameamount per  meal,  and times fed a day on food container lid. Include a measuring cup also with pets name please.   Do not bring us 50 pounds of kibble if you pet is spending the weekend with us. Do include an extra meal or two just in case.

If possible,  bring daily meds in container like the one pictured below. Place this and any pill bottles inside your solid food container.  We can refill if staying longer than one week.  Make sure to include the drug name and amount on the visitation form.  Should your pet get over the counter meds, feel free to bag morning meals with his vitamins included in the bag. Each bag should have his name and be placed in his food container. Should he get vitamins more than once a day, or if your pet is staying longer than a week, just include the vitamin bottle inside the solid food container and we will add according to your directions.

Maureen makes her own dog food.  She is happy to feed special diets and has no trouble accommodating those who also feed a raw or cooked homemade diet.
